They were a band that did not ever seem to fit in any category. They were part of the sixties underground without subscribing to it. They stood against the evils of the establishment without subscribing to the Flower Power ethics which Frank saw as equally phoney.
The used parody and satire and turned it as much on the sixties underground as they did on the establishment.
Musically they were extraordinary, experimental and based more on electronic music and Doo-wop than Blues.
They were different.
The first couple of albums were great but it was We’re Only In it For The Money which blew my mind. I played that album incessantly.
So today I’m going to be playing Frank very loud (I’m not quite so sure it’ll keep me sane though!).
